Ahmed Khan's Baaghi 3 starring Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor has already hit the theaters this Friday. During the promotions of Baaghi 3, the director shared his views on the concept of Thappad. As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Ahmed Khan said that he found the concept of Thappad very strange. He did not understand just because the husband slapped his wife, will she leave him forever? If she has a problem, she too should slap her husband twice in return.

He further said, "If I ever slap my wife, she can slap me back and end it. If I tell her that I don’t want to be with her anymore, then she can also tell me the same. But, will a slap decide whether a couple can stay together or not? But then, everyone has a different point of view and way of looking at it.” Taapsee Pannu, who played the lead role in Thappad responded back saying, “He makes films based on what he finds correct and it is the same for us. At the end of the day, it is the audience who give out the final verdict.”

She further said, “We have always seen relationships where there is love and respect. But, there might be those kinds of relationships too, of which he is talking about. He can continue to make films he is comfortable with. We will do what we are comfortable doing.” 

Directed by Anubhav Sinha, Thappad has got rave reviews and the initial public reaction has been positive. The film is the story of a couple whose life comes to a standstill after the husband slaps his wife in a fit of rage at a party. Thappad marks Taapsee and Anubhav Sinha's second collaboration after the 2018 movie Mulk.

.All the Taapsee Pannu movies are utter nonsence. Dangal and Pink were released almost at the same time. Which is do you think encourages true women empowerment. Pink? It just encourages us to have a nasty lifestyle.

Utter nonsense?? Seriously??
Yes Dangal was a hit but most of the real life stories are. And don't say pink encourages girls to live a nasty lifestyle . Just watch it carefully and u will realise what message it holds for the society

The slap was not the reason, it was the trigger... she lived a seemingly happy life but she actually wasn’t happy. The slap made her realize that, that’s all

Movies like Thappad scare people who are abusing their partners. No wonder the film didnt work. its a difficult watch in our society.its very difficult to go home and sleep after watching a movie liks this if you are yourself in an abusive relationship. but the message is right. generations of patriarchy isnt going to go away woth one movie. and, this director can continue to slap his wife until she has a problem with it, as he says.

its not about the slap but its about the realisation that your spouse does not respect you despite oneself making several sacrifices for their spouse &all the while thinking that they are loved unconditionally.not all men will get it.

Ahmed has a point. To diss home arrogantly by a flop actor pannu is not fair. The movie has bombed sadly.

The film has many flaws- it’s far from being glorified but it sends an imp message. Watch it on face value. Nor is tapsee’s performance great - just good. Any other actress like anushka or bhumi would have done much much better

I agree with him to some point
